Electricity generation from gaseous waste

Description of the internship

In Serbia, more than 100 landfills have no solution for landfill gas or leachate. Many of these landfills have no access to the electricity grid. At Trstenik, Hofstetter Gastechnik will be installing a system called “Auttonomous”, which injects landfill gas into a gas engine that produces electricity that can be used on site. Part of the energy will be used to power a compact reverse osmosis unit for treating landfill leachate. These measures should reduce the impact of landfill sites on the environment.
